Have you considered studying in Australia? It’s the perfect place if you want a high-quality education combined with a study-life balance and the opportunity to experience living in a young, multicultural, and modern nation.

Australian universities are consistently ranked in the world’s top 100. They are known for an excellent standard in education—including producing graduates who are innovative, agile thinkers that are highly sought after in the workplace.

Australia is a big country with a small population and a bright future—a great place to start your journey.

Melbourne, in the state of Victoria, has been ranked in the world’s top two most liveable cities for the last 10 years.

  • A thriving arts and theatre scene
  • An incredible and eclectic food and dining culture
  • A year-round calendar of sporting events, music festivals, food and wine festivals, and more
  • Great public transportation
  • Two international airports to get you around Australia and the world
